Stephanie Marie Cruz (Gavin), a loving mother and passionate individual, passed away unexpectedly on August 10, 2023, in Foxborough, MA. Born in Stoughton, MA on March 22, 1987, Stephanie was known for her kind and spirited nature, leaving an indelible mark on all who had the privilege to know her.

Stephanie was a proud graduate of Sharon High School, where she began to cultivate her love for photography. This passion for capturing life's moments, coupled with her inherent creativity, led to the creation of countless scrapbooks, each one a testament to her knack for preserving memories. Her love of animals was undeniable and was only paralleled by her love for her children and family.

Stephanie's love for the outdoors was evident in her fondness for the beach and her joy for swimming in the pool. These interests were more than hobbies; they were expressions of her love for life and the beauty it holds. Her ability to find joy in the simple pleasures of life was a trait that endeared her to many and is a testament to her positive and spirited nature.

She is survived by her beloved children, Shane Gavin and Adrianna Cruz of Foxborough, who were the center of her universe. Stephanie's love for her children was evident in every aspect of her life, from her unwavering support to her constant encouragement. Her legacy of love and kindness will undoubtedly live on through them.

Stephanie is also survived by her father, Phillip Gavin and his wife Wendy of Lakeville, and her mother, Deborah Gavin (Watson) of Foxborough. Her bond with her parents was a source of strength for her, and their love and support were constants in her life. She is also survived by her sister, Angela Baker of Florida, with whom she shared a special bond of sisterhood and friendship.

Stephanie was a beacon of positivity, her kindness radiating to everyone she met. Her spirited nature was infectious, and she had a unique ability to make everyone feel welcome and loved. Her memory will continue to serve as an inspiration for all those who knew her.

Stephanie's sudden passing is a tragic loss, but her zest for life, her unwavering love for her family, and her enduring spirit will forever be remembered. We celebrate Stephanie's life not only for the years she lived but for the love she gave, the lives she touched, and the joy she brought to those around her.
